What James Gorman says

The story of the 1936 U.S. Olympic rowing team competing in the Berlin Olympics. One should never underestimate what the determined amateur can do when armed with a professional attitude.

  • Howard Schultz

    An unlikely story set in the Pacific Northwest of a group of gritty, up-by-the-bootstraps young men pitted against the most elite and privileged athletes the world could throw at them. The fact that we already know they won the gold doesn’t make the story any less riveting or their actions any less heroic.

Final Rounds

About
The Book
James Dodson always felt closest to his father while they were on the links. So it seemed only appropriate when his father learned he had two months to live that they would set off on the golf journey of their dreams to play the most famous courses in the world. Final Rounds is a book about their poignant journey; it is also about golf, about fathers and sons, long-held secrets, and the lessons a middle-aged man can still learn from his dad about life, love, and family.
